The response to fires is a coordinated effort that can vary from a single fire truck responding to a car fire to multiple pieces of equipment responding to a structure fire.
Responding to Structure Fires
The initial response to a reported structure fire is:
Medical Emergency Support
- 2 engine companies
- Ladder truck
- Shift commander
Fire suppression vehicles will also at times supplement staffing needs on emergency medical calls and are equipped to remove trapped victims of motor vehicle collisions.
